After the river dried up in 2011 due to drought he and a group of other village chiefs formed Faleaseela Environment Protection Society (FEPS) that helps local communities to work together to protect watershed and rainforest sanctuaries during floods, droughts and cyclones. Together with the local youth and women they have planted about 9000 native trees to restore habitat for 'manunea', an endangered species of Samoan national bird. It is believed that only 200 manunea birds are left in the country.
